Itty Bitty Baby

Cradled in the hand of my fellow ranger, aka Scranton, a brand-new, itty-bitty ground skink (Scincella lateralis).

lynne,
Such tiny little vertebrates do seem miraculous, don't they? BTW, the view from your window at Hasty Brook is awesome!

Holy smokes, how do you even spot such a miniature little creature. He mustn't weigh anything in the palm of your hand. How neat.

crowe,
Even as adults these skinks don't get very large -- but they are very quick.
